Music has been a strong theme in my work for the past eight years. I am developing a personal lexicon for visualizing musical language in mixed media paintings and assemblages. The paintings function for me like a composer’s written score; score lines appear and disappear within the surface of the paintings while imagined sounds are suggested by painterly gestures, patterns, and color modulations.
Mixed media installations allow me to share multi-dimensional ensembles of repurposed musical instruments with a broader audience in public display windows.
My dachsund "Oslo" keeps me company in the studio, but is not much help.
